>> we're seen power outages before, they basically do this every time. if you have a power grid go out while there's still light to be played. you can see the field. they don't completely allow them to keep going. we've seen this in other stadiums where we have weather related situations. there was nothing weather related to this. but we've seen this before where things are slowed down, they stop and then they resume again. but it's never happened on this stage. not with the lights shining so brightly on this game. >> i grew up in louisiana, spent a lot of time in new orleans. i grew up in baton rouge, i spent a lot of time in new orleans. people who live around the superdome, you know, the power goes out a lot around the superdome, the power grid gets stressed a lot. especially with the french quarter there and after hurricane katrina. usually there is a backup generator, a reserve generator,
7:09 pm
just like they have in hospitals. in any major facility, you would think in a sporting facility like that, they would have it, in an arena like that. things were going so well for new orleans when it came to recovery for hurricane katrina, every time i go back, the city really looks like it's recovering, this is a huge black eye, the world is watching, all of a sudden in the middle of the biggest game of the year, the biggest sporting game of the year, the power goes out and the momentum of the game changes. this is not good for the city. i love the city. i'm just being honest, mark? >> no. and we've had an incredible week here. it has been one incredible week this city has been looking forward to since the recovery from carekatrina. they wanted the people to come back, it's been a festive atmosphere throughout. you have to wonder, where will this go. the aging infrastructure of this facility itself, it's been through massive renovations since katrina, we damaged it,
7:10 pm
remember the rooftop damage we saw here. a lot of renovation in the stadium, and now the questions will be asked, not necessarily about the city but the facility isself. and we're waiting to here, like everybody else why this happened. why during the second half of the biggest game of the year, why did the lights go out here at the superdome. >> mark, stand by, as we look at those images, the pictures, i saw, we have our very own pictures from being inside the superdome, when that gaping hole was at the top. stand by, we'll get back to you as we continue to try to figure out what happened in new orleans at the super bowl. super bowl xlvii, when the lights went out for about 40 minutes and changed the entire momentum of the game. and now there's going to be lots of questions answered about what exactly happened. will this game be contested? what is this going to mean for the city of new orleans. and all of the officials who are connected to the superdome down in new orleans.

the superdome in new orleans where the lights went out not long ago right during super bowl 47. we're just getting some information in from the officials in new orleans. officials in alabama say they're still communicating with jimmy lee dikes to negotiate the release of a 5-year-old boy. he's being held in an underground bunker since being kidnapped off a school bus. the bus driver is being hailed as a hero. we started our broadcast earlier this evening with news of a killing at a gun range. and it is also developing tonight. one of the dead is well known former navy s.e.a.l. who wrote a book about his career in special operations. he described himself as the most

7:21 pm
we are back. i'm going to bring in terence moore, he's a sports contributor at the game in new orleans. terence, let me tell you, this is a mess. this is a mess because when this all happened, it was 28-6 in the ravens favor. right now it is 31-29. baltimore's still winning, but quickly the momentum quickly shifted. let me tell you what's going on. entergy which is the power supplier, they supply the power. this is a little bit inside baseball, i worked at the power supply company in high school. it was gulf states energy. then it was bought by entergy.
7:22 pm
at all times energy transmission was feeding the superdome. we continue to work with the superdome personnel to look into any outstanding issues. this is a statement from the company spokesman. power has been repaired we sincerely apologize. authorities are investigating the cause of the power outage. we will have more information as it becomes available. those are all those statements. when they called the saints officially, because that's where the saints play officially, officially they are deferring all questionses to the nfl. the saints are like, we're not playing, it's not our issue, do not ask us. terence, this is -- i have to tell you, if you're playing, if i am the baltimore ravens, and i have all of this momentum it's
7:23 pm
right after half time, we just ran the ball back 109 yards. i have to sit 40 minutes on the sideline. and all of a sudden i lose momentum, somebody's got some explaining to do. >> there's one group left out there, don. and that's the new orleans police force, and they say simply there was too much power going into the superdome. i'm blaming all this on beyonce's half time performance. she must be a san francisco fan. i know she's from houston. but that's the cause of that because as you say, after that half time performance it went all down hill for baltimore. i'll tell you something else. they are very lucky, there was not a riot in that stadium. it was 35 minutes. i was in that dome, if it had lasted another four or five
7:24 pm
minutes people were about to lose their freaking minds. >> it's not over yet. i would hope -- i'll tell anyone within the sound of my voice, and i am praying and hoping that everyone remains calm, but if this game turns out to go the other way, people are going to be ticked off. i want to say another word, you know what i mean for ticked off. quite honestly, i was hoping the ravens would win tonight. when i saw this, i said, wait a minute, momentum has changed. the lights go out, what does it mean for the superdome, what does this mean for new orleans? will they ever get another game? >> yeah, well, here's the other factor, is that in the beginning of the blackout, the fans were taking it pretty light heartedly, doing the wave. after they started doing the wave, people got tired of the wave, and people started booing the rave. they started a ravens chant. the 49er fans didn't like that, and then people got irritated. remember, jim harbaugh, the
7:25 pm
coach of san francisco is a ticking timebomb anyway. this is going to be really bad for a lot of people as you just said. and what was making it worse they kept coming on the p.a. system saying, everyone stay calm. stay in your seats, it was like that scene from animal house, there's nothing to see here, stay calm. people are starting to panic. this is as bad as it gets. here you figure, we're post katrina, everything was going so well, everybody was happy, as this happens. people might question again whether or not new orleans can handle a superbowl. >> yeah. i spent a lot of time in the dome for a lot of games that were won and lost for my team, and there's a lot of drinking going on there. i'm looking at social media, they say, what happens when the lights go out in the superdome, you get drunk, what a difference a blackout makes. this is on social media. it's a flatout conspiracy, if the 49ers win tonight.
7:26 pm
wtf is up with this blackout bowl. you know what that means? i would love to know how this game would have gone without the blackout. bbcs super bowl. and on and on and on. that is on social media. imagine the people in the stadium and the people who paid all that money for those tickets and all that money for that to go down in new orleans. they're going to be upset. right now it's 34-29. baltimore is in the lead with a couple minutes left to play. anything can happen. put your sports marketing hat on as well. go ahead, terence. >> sure. i'm going to say, let's put this, let's not get out of control yet, let's remember san francisco is a really good team. san francisco is a team that has a habit of coming back. their previous game in the divisional series against atlanta. they were down 17 points. never notice history has a team come back -- >> everybody knows that. >> they came back.
7:27 pm
>> everybody knows that. even in your -- professionally or personally, in your personal life and professional life. when you're on a role, you're on a role. and when you're feeling positive, and you have energy and everything's going your way, that begets more success. success begets more success. if you have a time and you take a time-out. you get injured and you have to rest. you look at the sidelines and you lose that energy. come on, man. that's the truth. >> but again, playing devil's advocate, san francisco also had time to sit around and think about this huge deficit, being in the super bowl, embarrassing themselves. the pixie dust is gone. i'm just saying that balancing this out a little bit, we've got to get san francisco some credit here, this is a team that's been very resilient. you have that other factor going there. have you brother against brother. you have john harbaugh for
7:28 pm
baltimore not wantsing to be embarrassed. there's a ying and a yang here you have to look at. >> taerns. >> it's my story and i'm sticking to it. >> as i look at social media. and this is true, this person is right. someone said, twitter ain't been this live since obama versus romney. they're absolutely right. i can't even keep up with my twitter feed people are talking about this so much. there are a lot of people that are happy. there are a lot of people who are not happy about this. if you were not interested in these two teams, you're interested in this story. so i want you to put your sports marketing hat on. i want you to put your sports marketing hat on and tell me what this means, and your commerce hat. what this means for the city of new orleans and what this means for the superdome. will they ever get another super bowl game or a game really close to this magnitude after the break.

welcome back, everyone. tonight is the night the lights went out in new orleans. delaying the super bowl for about 40 minutes. the lights went out for about 35 minutes. it took a couple minutes to get play resumed. some people down in new orleans and beyond have some explaining to do. the momentum has changed. when the lights went out, the score was 28-6 in favor of the ravens. now, guess what, the san francisco 49ers, it's looking like they are going to take the lead at any moment and could very well win this thing. did that delay in the game
7:33 pm
change the momentum and what are the repercussions from that, we're keeping a close eye on it for you. we have some other headlines we want to get you updated on, and then we'll get back to that story in a moment. officials in alabama are still communicating with jimmy lee dikes to release a 5-year-old boy. he's been held hostage since being abducted from a school bus tuesday. a funeral was held today for the school bus driver who was killed trying to shield the children. charles poland is being hailed a hero. near ft. worth texas, a man is in jail charged with murdering two men. both victims were former military. one of the dead is a nationally known former navy s.e.a.l. and best selling author chris kyle, he was celebrated in military circles for his impressive combat record and work on behalf of veterans. police are working on a motive, and susan candiotti is following the story for us. >> this is so stunning. so sad.
7:34 pm
when legendary navy s.e.a.l. sniper chris kyle and chad littlefield took another marine vet to a gun range, they never could have imagined any weapons would be turned on them. but that's exactly what happened. with kyle and littlefield shot dead multiple times at a remote area of a gun range near ft. worth texas. their bodies were found nearly two hours later by a guide at the range. investigators say ralph drove up in kyle's pickup truck and headed to his sister's house, he told her and his brother what had happened, then he left and his family called police. when a team of officers arrived at his house, he was sitting outside in kyle's pickup. a hostage negotiator tried to talk him out, he took off down the road. here's how a witness describes it. >> i was scared. they had him -- they had like four shotguns on him, i believe. it's dark out here, i did the
7:35 pm
best counting i could. the next thing i know, a little time passes, he starts up the truck, and then all of a sudden, he rushes down the road and they all take off after him. >> police sped after him and arrested ralph without a struggle. about 25 to 30 other weapons were found at the crime scene, including handguns, ak-47s and long guns. they believe the murder weapon is a semiautomatic handgun they found at ralph's home and they're running tests on it. as for mostive, we may never know because the only witness is the alleged killer. this is the first time kyle littlefield met ralph. kyle has a agency that helps veterans with ptsd. >> there has been some mention of the suspect's mother was a schoolteacher for what we
7:36 pm
understand for a long time. she may have reached out to mr. kyle to try to help her son. >> police say they don't know whether ralph suffered from ptsz, he's being held on $3 million bond and is in a cell by himself, police can keep an eye on him. he's charged with two capital murder counts and is not yet endered a plea. don? >> susan, thank you very much. as a decorated former navy s.e.a.l., chris kyle was doing a lot of good work for fellow veterans. here's nick valencia. >> reporter: as a navy s.e.a.l., chris kyle survived four tours of combat duty. it was at this gun range outside of dallas, texas where he died, around the corner from his home at the age of 38. he was known to millions of americans as the author of the best selling book american sniper. in six years kyle said he killed more than 150 iraqi insurgents.
7:37 pm
he became so hated by them, he had a bounty on his head. >> it started every time someone would be shot by a sniper in the area. they associated that with me. >> to iraqi insurgents, he was known as the devil of ramadi. but to his fellow navy s.e.a.l.s, he was called the legend. he loved horses, but most of all, he loved his family and helping people. according to his friends almost immediately after returning from combat. kyle started the hero's project to help soldiers suffering from ptsd. >> he had a vision to support veterans and their needs and he was fearless in that. and he gave his life in doing so. his friends remember him as a family man. the emotional exhaustion of being away from his family took such a toll on them, he finally came home. >> i took it as an ultimate um, either you get out or she and my kids were going to be gone. >> of course, he looked at that and thought the marriage would be over. honestly, he's probably right.
7:38 pm
i didn't think that far ahead. >> kyle is survived by his wife and two small children. we're talking about lights out at the super bowl. our correspondents and contributors were in the superdome when the lights went out and we're going back to new orleans live. we're going to hear from them and guess what. this game the momentum of this game may have changed and it may very well be because the lights went out in the dome. hey hun, remember you only need a few sheets. hmph!

7:43 pm
sports and our studio team reported on the situation as a breaking news story providing updates and results while full power was restored to the dome including sets and broadcast booth. as we were watching it in the newsroom, terence, i was saying, been there before. the producer's in your ear saying, keep talking, major technical problems. i guess that's what was going on. i asked you before the break to put on your hat and your sports marketing hat. first to sports marketing as we wait for a couple seconds. first for sports marketing, what does this mean for the superdome? >> i'm going to such you, don. i think they're going to be o y
7:44 pm
okay. the best thing that happens is new orleans getting another super bowl. because of bounty-gate, there's no way in the world that roger goodell wants to look like he's anti-new orleans, that's number one. number two, new orleans to the nfl is what indianapolis is to the ncaa and basketball. indianapolis is the perfect place for the final four. the way the city is built. just like new orleans is the perfect place for a super bowl. people will be irritated but they'll get over it. >> i want to bring in sean gregory. he's with "time" magazine producers? yes, sean gregory, "time" magazine. can you hear me? sean gregory, can you hear me, sir? >> can you hear me?

>> no sean gregory. to terence moore. you say you think they will get a number of other super bowls, this won't be a black eye for the superdome? you don't think it's a black eye for new orleans? you're talking to the chamber of commerce and they say, how do we fix this? do they have to do any sort of pr fixing come monday morning? >> yeah, there's no question about that, that's a short run, short term problem. long term, because of the two things i just said, they're going to be fine. and don, i just thought about something here, there's a song by journey where they talk about san francisco and it says, when the lights go down in the city. this is so ironic, san francisco here in new orleans and, of course, the lights went down in this city. the crescent city, not the city, but the crescent city. i don't know what that means, but it's interesting.
7:46 pm
>> it certainly would be a good night to be down in new orleans. there is no other city in the united states, i've been to almost every city in the u.s., there's no other city in the u.s. that's like new orleans. it's like a european city. >> i've been here for three super bowls. this reminds me, in 1986, the bears super bowl. you had this talk with people in the french quarter, and what have you -- >> can i stop you? >> sure. >> i have to say, terence, congratulations to the harbaugh brothers, the ravens win tonight 34-31. the blackout may have stopped the momentum, but it didn't stop the ravens from wing. they probably, if not for this blackout, they would have won by a much more significant margin. john harbaugh with the ravens,
7:47 pm
jim with san francisco. john is probably the happier brother. there was not much brotherly love there, was there? >> no, not much. >> not so far. >> anyway, seriously, we still have this issue of the blackout. we're looking at one lone 49ers player sitting on the bench. quite honestly, this is my city. i think you are romanticizing this a little bit, terence, i really do. i don't think this looks good. i want to congratulate the ravens and i want to be happy for them. i think this does not look good. this is not a good look for new orleans and it's not a good look for the super bowl. >> looking at it objectively,
7:48 pm
knowing how the nfl looks at things, knowing how it's about logistics and everything else, new orleans is going to be fine in the long run. you know how we are in the media. we're going to take a pounding on monday probably by tuesday -- you know, starting in a couple weeks, you have the nba all-star game, this is going to be forgotten. you have the nfl draft coming up, you have the final four, in about two, three, for months, this is going to be yesterday's news. people will want a super bowl back here in new orleans, because of bourbon street. because of the french quarter, because this is new orleans, and people love it. >> i just texted mitch landrieu down in nurnlsz. and hopefully he will get back to me. you know how to fix this? it's to come out right away and say, you know what, cnn, nbc, cbs, abc, whoever, new orleans has been through a lot over the past couple years, we've worked our butts off to fix our

7:50 pm
that ate the wire or someone pulled a plug out of the transform transformer. it is it what it is. the ravens are a good football team. >> does it ruin the super bowl experience for you? >> no. >> does this reflect poorly on the city of new orleans when something like this happens? >> no, it's happened once in san francisco i guess last year it happened. >> during a football game? >> right, right. >> you paid a lot of money for your ticket? >> yes. >> does it ruin your experience at all? >> no, we hung out, we did the wave. hunk out with the crowd. we're in the san francisco section, so it's a little harder. >> the fans seemed to be okay? >> a couple people were restless, other than that, everyone was calm. >> it doesn't affect your experience? >> it means nothing.
